Flex-Erect is a Structural Steel, Miscellaneous Metals, and Ornamental/Architectural Iron erector. We partner with our clients and provide services for all of their steel erection needs. Flex-Erect delivers a quality project, regardless of the dollar amount.


Founded by Doug Goulas in 2005 with two employees, Flex-Erect completed several smaller projects in the first months of the company before the first major project hit. Through existing relationships, Doug secured the new FBI Building in Houston, and he hired four more employees and started the project. Through the diligent work of the young team, they proved themselves, and the original scope was increased several times before the final project completion. This is all Flex-Erect needed and the young company was off to the races. The FBI project launched Flex-Erect and proved that we could handle any project’s unique opportunities.

In 2015, after several years of working together in a GC/Subcontractor relationship, Doug approached Steve Thomas and asked if he would be interested in joining Flex-Erect as Vice President of Operations. After several years of growth and discussions, Doug and Steve came to an agreement for Steve to purchase the majority interest in the company; in November of 2019 the final agreement was reached and the company changed hands.


We admire and appreciate the legacy that Doug built in the early years of the company. His desire to build a team that was relationship-driven, treated team members as family, and dealt with all employees and clients with respect and dignity is the foundation of Flex-Erect today.


Even though we have grown our family to over 60 employees and our client base has increased dramatically, most of the team members that started with Doug in 2005 are still with us today. We are also fortunate that many relationships Doug developed years ago are still clients of the team today.


As we move Flex-Erect forward, we will grow our experience and team, just as when the company started, with a persistent desire to build long-lasting, fruitful relationships, a commitment to working with integrity while building quality projects, and leaving our company, employees, and community better served.
